MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) - Kyle Vinales scored 34 points and Central Connecticut State survived a Robert Morris rally for a 77-70 victory Saturday night in Northeast Conference action.

Vinales hit 12 of 22 shots from the floor. He was 4 for 9 on 3-pointers.

Vinales also made 6 of 9 free throws for the Blue Devils (5-8, 1-1), who had a 20-11 edge at the foul line. Two came in the waning seconds when Robert Morris (8-7, 0-2) rallied.

The Colonials, trailing 38-33 at halftime, got within 72-70 on a jumper by Karvel Anderson (15 points) with 54 seconds left. But Matt Hunter (11 points) answered with a jumper with 22 seconds remaining to make it 74-70. After Velton Jones, who led Robert Morris with 22 points, committed a turnover, Vinales made two free throws with 14 seconds remaining.

Anderson missed a 3-pointer with 0:09 left and Malcolm McMillan's free throw ended it.
